  • Depends on how ticked off he is and what mood I'm in. I know when to push him and when to shut up.

  • For me, it depends on the situation. If it's over something stupid, I just walk away! I don't have time to argue over stupid stuff. If it's important, I say what needs to be said and walk away.

  • same for me, depends on how mad he is. If it makes me mad, yes I am likely to talk back, other times, I don't talk at all for anything and usually he comes to apologize to me.

  • I usually leave him alone. I used to try and argue with him but he never fell for it! He doesn't yell when he gets angry, he gets very quiet. Unless he REALLY mad then he will raise his voice but even then, he is alot calmer then I am when I get mad!

  • Depends. Sometimes I leave him alone and sometimes I freak out on him. It depends on what the situation is. If he is mad at me I almost always confront it. If he is mad at someone/something else and just taking it out on me, I leave it alone until he decides to apologize.

  • For the most, most of you have stated the obvious, and what I do as well. Depending on the situation, depends whether I "fly" back at him. If it's something stupid, I look at him like HE's stupid and ignore him. IF it's my fault, I still ignore him, till he chills out. He's venting in general, or gets into name calling, it's time for me to blow my stack as well.
